This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

In the Fikirtepe district of Istanbul, Kamil and his wife Remziye are at risk of losing their home. Urban transformation is pushing out local families and Syrian refugees are left to take shelter in the deserted buildings.

Desperately in need of work, Kamil decides to secretly accept a construction job, working for the very company taking over their neighbourhood, displacing a Syrian refugee from the position and agreeing to work for less than other Turkish workers.

Fearing both discovery and failure, Kamil’s anxiety gradually transforms him, and Remziye is left to face the consequences of her husband’s unrecognisable actions.
